We spent 10 days in Costa Rica and I think this is the only place I'm even going to review. The room was great- large with 3 beds, AC, fridge and 2 ceiling fans and was by far the least amount of money we spent anywhere. It was comfortable and a steal. It even had its own balcony with two, that's *two*, hammocks on it. The communal kitchen is well-stocked and has everything you need for coffee including a bag of really good coffee. For serious cooking, no problem, there are two little groceries within a block and the kitchen has a full compliment of pots and pans and plateware.
But really the greatest thing about this place is the staff, namely Ivania and her sister. Ivania was barraged daily by all of my family's questions and demands and she never, really, actually never was without a smile and a patient, useful answer. She helped us find things to do (snorkeling trip!), great restaurants and trouble-shot problems in the room like finickly hot water. Most amazing of all, we ended up burdened with about two pounds of strawberries and when my Dad asked if maybe there was a blender to make "batidas" with, Iviana brought one from her home, on a bus, and her sister spontaneously volunteered to make them. She not only made excellent shakes, adding lemon, sugar and milk and ice, but bonus of all bonuses she even did all of the dishes for us. Just the sweetest, best people, I recommend the place to anyone.
